jobs. a blue state, california, a lot of federal jobs. california is a state with high unemployment rate, over 10%. you can see there, virginia as well. texas with a lower rate. anyway, what this would be would be a federal spending hit on top of what's already going on in those counties and in those states, bill. what you hear from the pew center is that these states right now are not in very good shape right now to take additional federal cuts, given what's going on with their economics right now, bill. >> steve, do i understand when i look at california and texas in the red there, and i look at the numbers -- >> and virginia. >> and virginia. 10% to 13% of the work force is federal? >> of all federal jobs, yes. >> 10% of all federal jobs are in california but not all 10% of jobs in california -- >> no, all jobs in california are material jobs. >> 10% of jobs in california are federal. >> holy smokes! >> that's a big number. that could also be military. >> no wonder. >> stay there, steve. good stuff. let's talk about the cliff-hanger's impact on corporate spending. it is the lead
the ross dress for less stores are in 33 states. although they're mostly concentrated in california and the southern parts of the country. while dee dee's discount is just in eight states. company's goal is to ultimately add another 1,000 ross dress for less locations and 500 more dee dee dee's discounts. ross has plenty of room to expand. second, the company has a terrific business model. you know what they do? they buy unsold merchandise from regular retailers like department stores at deep discounts. when the companies are anxious to unload excess inventory at the end of the season, ross will pack the stuff away, store it for nine months and put it on the floor when it's relevant again. the backaway strategy as they call it allows the company very opportunistic about buying merchandise from stores that bought too much away from them. thanks to manufacturer overruns, chanc chan canceled orders, and the merchandise in the stores for hurricane sandy that didn't sell, that left retailers with much too much inventory in the northeast and it's dated inventory. third, ross stores is a b
it is the first pure electric car from general motors since the ev one. it goes on sale in california and oregon only, middle of next year. gm expects the press point to be somewhere around 25,000. the all-important question, what is the range going to be, how far will it go fully charged? gm is not saying at this point, only it will be competitive with other electric cars. speaking of other electric cars this market is struggling now look at auto sales through september of this year. 73%, almost 8 million vehicles in the u.s., are gasoline powered. still a predominant source of power train in this country. hybrids, 279%, 300,000. as for pure electric, just 8,289 pure electric cars sold in the u.s. right now. take a look at shares of general motors in the last year. if you were a gm investor in the last year, up 24%. a lot of people talk about gm ought to learn what they are doing at tesla, tesla leading the way with electric cars. gm versus tesla, no comparison, gm up 24%, tesla up just 1.4%. as i said at the beginning of this report, you will see more electric vehicles coming from general moto
their jobs. the fact this they see job growth happening. certainly here in california we've had job growth. so i think in our world in southern california we're going to be in pretty good shape. but uncertainty is never good. i don't think there should be an option. >> mr. caruso, yesterday craig barrett, former ceo of intel, described california where you live and do a lot of business as america's version of greece because of the level of public expenditure and so forth. do you see it that way? >> no, i don't see it that way. listen, california has its issues. locally we have our issues. there are income issues, there are increased taxes that i wouldn't necessarily want to have happen in the state, which did happen. but we have to address those. i think we've got positive momentum. i know we have positive momentum. so are we perfect? no. but california is growing at a much faster pace and a better pace than most of the united states. so i don't equate it to greece at all. >> mr. caruso, thank you for being with us and a happy thanksgiving to you. >> thanks you. >>> he's a billionaire, rig
. start with the website of the stock. daryl in california, please. >> caller: booyah, jim cramer. i have a question what is meant by a reverse split stock? >> that means if there's a million shares let's say they do a three to one, make to it 300,000 shares. what is typically done, citi group did one of these. what it does, if you have like 300 billion shares you divide it by three, you got 100 billion. it does raise the price but it's illusory. you just have fewer shares. tyler in florida. >> caller: jim i'm going to give you a south florida booyah. >> i'll take that. i need to go there now always >> caller: sun is shining. actually it's overcast. but quick question for you. when you talk about the economy really booting off again it seems like you talk about it in terms of consuming and not producing. i'm thinking from the way i think about it you need something to be produced before it's consumed. i'm wondering why in terms of a growing economy you talk about consumption instead of production. that's what it seems like to me. >> i do. because in order to be able to raise price you nee
with the refiners. bp decided to sell off two of its refiners. one in texas city and the other in carson, california. historically, i haven't been a big fan of the refiner business. lately the dynamics of the industry have changed dramatically for the better. we've got an oil boom going on in this country and that's been great for the refiners because they make their money off the difference between the domestic west texas price that they pay for oil, sometimes even underneath that, and the higher global brent crude price they use to charge for refined products. that's the benchmark they price off of. right now the spread is higher than it's been in ages. great for refiners. which refiners have benefitted from bp's desperate need to raise cash? first there's marathon pete, marathon petroleum. symbol mpc. mom, peter, charlie. agreed to buy bp texas city for $2.5 billion back in october. this deal should have tremendous synergies because marathon pete already operates in this area. bp had spent $5 billion refurbishing this refinery just seven years ago. now marathon can buy it for half of that cost? w

'm not hearing any such thing. >> and you won't. i live in california. we just now passed a measure that raise the state income taxes to 13.3%, the highest in the nation, and the president of the l.a. city council is going back to the voters and asking for another increase in sales tax. it's never enough. the left never gets enough taxes. we spend more on k-12 than any other country and ask any teacher, educrat if they want more money and they will say less. it's never enough for the left. >> well, you know, larry, i don't know which larry i'm talking about, the fiscal deliver, the whole discussion about the fiscal cliff to me is a farce and the reason why is because it's based on this notion that somehow too much deficit reduction is a bad thing. you can't have it both ways. you can't say you want to reduce the deficit and that's a priority and on the other hand we have a fiscal cliff that would reduce the deficit and you're opposed to that because you -- you don't want to increase taxes. >> i want to reduce the deficit. you're absolutely wrong. i want to reduce the deficit j why are you afra
that's where we're going. >> you're from california, correct? >> i live there, yes. >> doesn't make you a bad person. >> i'm from buffalo too. >> it explains why he's stylish, right? well, i live in california. we voted to raise income taxes and sales taxes. california is, what, one-seventh of the u.s. economy. >> jerry browne's miracle. >> i'm going to get a bill as well as every other californian asking for money. >> what is your point? >> that will have a negative impact on the california economy and on the u.s. economy. so ron is right. there are parts of the u.s. economy are certainly improving, but there are other parts that have not yet felt a vice that's squeezing on them. >> all right. we got to go. the bell is going to ring shortly, i feel like. we got to go. thank you, everybody. appreciate it. we are heading toward the close and, really, the market is where it was before all the rhetoric came out on the cliff. the dow up 32 points right how it. >> we've heard some democrats made maye be willing to dive off that fiscal cliff. our next guest certainly is not following suit. fi
're finding them now throughout california, maryland, chicago, miami, new york. >> if this is happening all over the country, why do so few people know about it? >> when you talk about shoplifting, not a lot of people think about organized crime. most people think when you say shoplifting, it's the opportunistic shoplifter. >> winona ryder. >> winona ryder. there you go. that's kind of how people look at shoplifting. nobody really talks about the fact that, jeez, it's really organized, it's big business, and it's high loss to retailers. that's all part of the group, right-- >> matsamato says the south americans usually work in small groups, relying on distraction, advanced planning, and precision teamwork. one or two people occupy the sales staff while others go to work. it doesn't take them long. watch these two. they're about to steal $3,000 worth of armani suits in just ten seconds using some specially designed equipment. >> he's gonna roll it up. now, here's a booster girl right here. this is a great example of how we talked about, how it's elastic. very quick. notice how quick this can
short, we spent two days debriefing lewis at his home in california. >> this was an episode where capitalism was almost destroyed just by the capitalists. and in the most sensational way, they were sort of destroyed by their own folly. >> what happened? >> the incentives for people on wall street got so screwed up that the people who worked there became blinded to their own long-term interests, and--because the short-term interests were so overpowering. and so they behaved in ways that were antithetical to their own long-term interests. >> michael lewis, a one-time wonder boy on wall street, is ensconced in this hillside compound in berkeley, california, which has a main house and three cottages, and he is much happier writing about business than actually conducting it. he lives here with his wife, former mtv news correspondent tabitha soren, and their three children: a three-year-old son and two young daughters who he takes to all of cal berkley's women's basketball games. it's one of the few breaks that lewis allowed himself over the past 18 months as he dug into the idiocy and
was buying this paper oil? >> california pension fund, harvard endowment, lots of large institutional investors. and, by the way, other investors, hedge funds, wall street trading desks were following right behind them, putting money--sovereign wealth funds were putting money in the futures markets as well. so you had all these investors putting money in the futures markets, and that was driving the price up. >> in a five-year period, masters said the amount of money institutional investors, hedge funds, and the big wall street banks had placed in the commodities markets went from $13 billion to $300 billion. in 2008, 27 barrels of crude were being traded every day on the new york mercantile exchange for every one barrel of oil that was actually being consumed in the united states. >> we talked to the largest physical trader of crude oil, and they told us that compared to the size of the investment inflows--and, remember, this is the largest physical crude oil trader in the united states-- they say that we are basically a flea on an elephant, that that's how big these flows were. >> y
and barack obama according to the polls is going to win california and as he should. there are a lot of supporters. he's a great individual, but i think at the margin when people are focused on small business and growth and opportunities for small business entrepreneurs and reducing regulation i think people do think about different options. >> do you worry about regulation in the tech sector? one of its last industries that probably doesn't have nearly the same regulation as many of the other industries. >> as i sit here today, i don't worry about it, but one of the things i worry about is, one of the areas of investment we're excited about spending more time on is what i call the asset light generation and if you look at the fact that you can walk out your apartment door in the morning, with your smartphone and your tablet, and you've got, in effect have cash on your phone, your media library on the phone, you can get news and information, a taxi, all sorts of things, a hotel room, i think one of the things i worry about is the regulation of some of these companies that are putting

[ male announcer ] this is steve. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. >>> the mark
